Buffering Tops 2012 Schillaci Stakes Nominations

Star Queensland sprinter Buffering is the standout entry for Saturday’s Group 2 2012 Schillaci Stakes (1000m) at Caulfield.


Buffering is the top nomination for the Schillaci Stakes

The multiple Group 1 placegetter got his spring campaign off to a flyer at Moonee Valley two weeks ago when winning the Group 2 Moir Stakes and will be out to continue that success this weekend.

The son of Mossman is reportedly completely over the minor problems suffered following a series of inoculations last week and is primed to continue his spring campaign on the way to the big Group 1 sprints.

Buffering is one of two Queensland runners amongst the 12 horses nominated for the Schillaci, with Tony Gollan’s Group 1 winner Temple Of Boom set to have his first race of the spring.

The six-year-old gave Gollan his first Group 1 win in the Galaxy at Randwick in April and had a solid winter campaign that included a third-place finish in the Doomben 10,000 and a fifth in the Stradbroke Handicap.

A winner of 10 of 32 starts, Temple Of Boom excelled in Melbourne last year when winning the Aurie’s Star Handicap, the Gilgai Stakes and finishing second in the Salinger Stakes.

Leading trainer Peter Moody has entered two runners, with multiple stakes winner Golden Archer joined by consistent mare Kulgrinda.

There are plenty of in-form runners nominated including the Tim Martin-trained Pampelonne who will be out to build on the form shown when winning the Group 2 Shorts first-up.

The lightly-raced gelding has an impressive strike rate of five wins and two placings from eight career starts.

Facing a step up in class but in excellent form is the Leon Corstens-trained Snitzem who has last seen winning the Mazda 55 Second Heat at Moonee Valley late last month.

Other nominated horses include the Marc Conners-trained Didntcostalot and Sydney gelding Winter King.
